You can study up to 144 items at the Hana Ami Blumenschule.
All designs are reflecting the originality of Kazumasa Kubo and Gabriele Wagner-Kubo, from basic designs followed by traditional items and handicrafts, going to cultural items like Easter and Christmas, Strauss (handtied bouquet), Kranz (wreath), bridal bouquets, vegetative style arrangements, natural designs and objects. The variations are for sure abundant.
Having that many items means, that you can learn much longer and also teach much longer.
"I want to know more, I want to be better". If these are your thoughts and wishes, the Hana Ami Blumenschule is meant for you!

One of our most important points is:
we give freedom to our instructors!
Freedom of flower choice: it is up to you, which flowers you use to teach an item. We recommended flowers, but your choice is free!
Freedom of container choice: of course, we recommend containers, but again, it is your free choice which container you use for teaching.
Freedom of size: you can teach the items in a very small scale, you can widen them up into gorgeous arrangements. The volume of your lesson items is your free decision.
Freedom of pricing: our prices to you ( students diploma fees, text fees) are fixed, but your lesson price is your free decision.
With this system, we are enjoying to see a wide collection of many varieties. And that is what makes flower design so enjoyable, right?
We love diversity!
